Themistocles Themistocles said: " This book is breathtaking. I mean, LITERALLY breath-taking. Just try to read it in bed, propped on your chest: I bet you'll start wheezing soon enough. Who prints a single-volume 2kg, 1200-page long book? For the love of god...

Quite a bit of a disappointment. I was a Kickstarter backer for this book but I'd lie if I said that my anxious waiting was rewarded much, since this book is quite amateurish with lots of flaws.

Sure, it's not as disastrous as the garbage that was cal
